What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

1. No purchase necessary
2. Timeframe: this is an ongoing group with no defined end time.

TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

Oh my gosh! My LQS had a "Meet the Teachers" night and I signed up for 10 classes! Half of the classes are finish classes where you bring your projects and there is a seasoned teacher to help while you complete your quilt...so, I figure I'm only half insane. The other classes are small projects that can be completed in a night, plus a beginning machine quilting class and a machine appliqué class. Starts out with tips on satin stitching and moves into invisible machine appliqué. I reasoned with myself that these are all things I need to know and master to be a good quilter. Besides that, the LQS rolled back classes to 2001 rates which were $15 bucks for most of the classes and two were free and two were $10 --- How could I pass that up? The teachers are fabulous and I'll be able to finish all my quilts myself...right? No more UFO's after I learn to finish them properly. Tell me I'm not nuts, please!

Hi everyone. I just signed up tonight after looking at my new CT catalog. I figure the UFO group would be good for me as I too have several hanging around. I did reprganize my sewing area and it is much easier to actually see what I have now! Yay! Ikea and the great shelves I got there! I am trying to finish hand quilting a full sized paper pieced dresden plate quilt I made for my sons wedding (two years ago)! I am over half way done though. I've had some health problems with my legs so that has delayed me a bit. Will post photos of in progress work soon.

Well I just finished a 2 day class with Libby Lehman at my LQS. Fabulous teacher! Unfortunately, now that the class is over and my quilt isn't done, I have officially added one more UFO to my list. But my enthusiasm for the project is still very high, so maybe I'll take a stab at finishing this weekend.

Oops! I think my computer hiccuped when I was trying to comment on Edith's UFO accomplishment and deleted her post and my comment. Stop by her page to see her UFO apron all finished. Sorry Edith!

I guess I"m not the only one with UFO"s. I have mine plus some of my mothers. I try to work on something each day. Maybe only a few stitches put it's something. You all sound like a great group. Thanks Marjorie

I think individual rules is how this is going. So, I'm not counting projects not started yet as UFO's because they not started yet. They are just stash for now. My goal is to finish 2 UFO's before starting a stash projects all before purchasing new projects. That should get me going. I'm currently working on a baby quilt UFO.

So if we don't really count the future projects that we have labeled as such, but our intent for a kit was, at the time of purchase, to actually make the thing *soon*, should that be one of the projects at the top of the list of things to do right after we complete two UFOs? Or is that tempting fate? LOL

I have a quilt retreat coming up (5 days on a beautiful mountain); and one of my guilds if having a "sit & sew" night. I'm hoping to make a BIG dent in my UFO pile this month. :) Di in TN

Looking at some of these comments, it looks as though I am NOT the only one with more than a few UFO's !! This should be a great way to get the nudges I need to complete somethings. Thanks in advance for help.

I"ve heard that until you actually cut into the fabric, it's not a UFO. :) Works for me! Di in TN
